You did not say how you are triggering your strobes. Some cheep wireless triggers have a lag time that will limit sync speed. I use a 5D2 with pocket wizard Multimax and get 1/200.

If I use the pocket wizard flex system I can go to 1/320 with no problem.

I have not tried with just a sync cord. I am using Alien Bee lights.


I am using pocket wizard plus'. I also have a FlexTT5-Canon that I haven't used yet. I am going to be buying a second one. I'm wanting to shoot outdoors and be able to over power the sun's light (remember I'm just learning this stuff and might only have 1/2 the information right).

Thank you for your input!
